You’ve written a well worded proposal and took care that you satisfied all of the technical requirements of an RFP, but you didn’t get the contract award. Perhaps you did all those things and you did get the award, but find yourself subject to a bid protest that has no merit. Our law firm can help you in either situation. Defending against a bid protest can be just a difficult and time consuming as filing one, but our law firm has developed methods for lowering the overall expense and time commitment. We will do the necessary fact finding in our interview with your firm and devise the plan that will have the highest likelihood of success. Sometime our conversation will lead to advising you that your case is not worth pursuing. As a firm, we don’t believe in charging clients for a service they don’t need or has little hope in leading to a advantageous outcome. If however, your case has merit and should be pursued, we will bring our considerable expertise to bear to help win or defend your case. Call us today for a consultation that will help us both determine the direction we should take.
Doing business in the United States can be difficult enough, but what about when your company is ready to expand into foreign markets. Going it alone and navigating the legal terrain in international business transactions can cost your company time and money. Our attorneys are trained in this practice area and network with other firms that specialize in this area. This may mean we have to coordinate with a French or English law firm or draft an international sales contract that protects your shipment of goods from the port of origin to your warehouse. Your company may find itself in the throws of international commercial arbitration disputing liability over a shipment of goods that was lost or ruined in transit or that did not meet your company’s expectations upon arrivals. Which country’s laws will apply? Where will the dispute be handled? How much will all of this cost? The diversity of needs in this legal arena are as diverse as your business and the companies with which you interact. However, it is almost impossible in our current economic climate to grow a company successfully without engaging in international business transactions. If your firm finds itself in need of lawyers who are capable in this area of law, give us a call.
With the seemingly neverending changes currently taking place in the world of health care law, having capable legal counsel is more necessary than ever.

What should you do if one of your employees complains that his or her medical coverage doesn’t provide what he or she expected? This ever changing landscape makes having competent legal counsel at your company’s disposal especially important.

When you lose your case at a trial court, what recourse do you have? Filing an appeal generally holds about a five percent chance of success, but having the right attorney writing your appellate brief can make all the difference. You need more than an attorney that an attorney who knows the law, you need an attorney who can write well. Good writing is more than just a rote recitation of the law, it means drilling down and producing a persuasive brief that moves an appellate judge to see things your way. An average appellate tribunal decides thousands of cases per year and are most easily impressed by new and nuanced arguments, versus recycled diatribes that have failed already in the past. Whitcomb Law, PC, employs and enlists only the best writers with a combination of legal prowess and necessary life experience required to relate the facts of your case to relevant case law in a persuasive manner. Call us today so we can discuss the facts of your case. If we take your case on, it is because we believe it has a real chance of winning and affecting the law in a positive for those who come behind you. Appellate law is serious business and should not taken lightly. Not every case is ripe for appeal, but if your is, a skilled appellate advocate can make all the difference between winning and losing.
